So with that in mind,  I put a shout out on my Twitter page for other bloggers to get in contact with me to share their blog reviews of local and independent businesses.

Jewellery Organisation To A Tee – Stackers Jewellery Boxes

If you’ve got a lot of jewellery like me, it can be a nightmare trying to store them all somewhere, yet also be able to look for a pair of earrings easily to match an outfit.

It’s made with barrel-aged, single malt Irish whiskey blended with…

My Favourite Apps as a New Blogger

My Favourite Apps as a New Blogger

As a new blogger there is a lot to get to grips with and adjust to. I started out by downloading apps that I felt would be most useful to me and seeing as everything is centered around phones and tablets I felt that I needed to organise my apps a bit better. I knew in my head what I wanted an app for but it was just finding the ones that are most suitable. So hopefully this post will…
